GST registration for overseas retailers

From 1 July 2023 If you're an overseas retailer or an online marketplace, who sells goods to non-business consumers in Jersey and despatches those goods from overseas, you must be registered for GST if your turnover from these sales:

  • exceeds £300,000 per annum
  • is likely to exceed £300,000 per annum 

Overseas retailers include sellers who supply goods in response to orders taken on their website, a third party website or through catalogue or similar sales.

This only applies to goods and not digital services.

Overseas retailers may also opt to register for GST even if you don't reach the threshold.
